Police were called at 1.24pm today (Friday, February 9) to reports that a Renault Clio had collided with the kiosk at the Yarl petrol garage on Bishops Rise.

A police spokeswoman said: “The driver, a woman, is not believed to be injured and at this time the incident is being treated as a damage-only collision.

“The collision did not involve any of the petrol pumps however the garage has been closed to the public to allow for structural assessment of the building.

“Vehicle recovery is being arranged for the Renault Clio.”

A man, who didn’t see the crash but has witnessed the aftermath, has told the Welwyn Hatfield Times that it looks like two children were inside the car at the time.

He said: “Luckily nobody was standing paying for fuel at the kiosk in side at the time.”

Two fire engines and four police vehicles are on the scene.
